Agaricus campestris (Meadow Mushroom)

The Meadow Mushroom is a delightful find! It’s name is derived from the Latin “campestris” which means “field”, or “plain”. Some of it’s distinctive features include a charming white cap which may have a slight central bump, and may contain brownish fibrils. The stem is also white, and there should be some remains of an annulus or ring on it. Its gills start out pink and turn brown with age. This highly sought-after edible mushroom is a true treat to discover in the wild. However, it’s crucial to watch out for toxic look-alikes. Always check for bright yellow bruising to rule out the toxic Yellow Stainers, and most importantly, be able to distinguish it from similar-looking Amanitas like the deadly Destroying Angel, which has a membranous outer veil at the base.
